Medivet Kingsbury has been a veterinary practice since 1985 and was one of the original Medivet branches. The list of clients is still growing but we also have the original, fiercely loyal clients who continue to come to us with their new generation of pets.
Kingsbury is located in North London between the areas of Hendon, Burnt Oak, and Wembley. The area is rapidly growing, with several new housing developments within walking distance to the clinic. The branch is larger than most with two consult rooms, large reception, separate theatre and x-ray rooms, a vet office, bespoke utility room, kitchen, private garden, spacious forecourt and on-site parking.
It benefits from being a 5-minute drive from the Hendon 24-hour hospital where there is access to MRI, CT, ultrasound, endoscopy, and laparoscopy facilities as well as more extensive in-house laboratory equipment. In general, the Hendon region is able to hugely benefit from the Medivet hub-and-spoke model due to close proximity to each other. Branch Partners and Lead Vets in the area speak frequently to share knowledge and experience.
The team is comprised of the Lead Vet, Head RVN, and currently two Student Veterinary Nurses although there is scope to grow to a 2-vet practice. Our Head RVN has been with Medivet over the past 15 years, with the majority of these being based at Kingsbury. The nursing team has had advanced training in developing the client journey and we pride ourselves on gold-standard care for both our patients and for their owners.
